Congress did manage to beat out telemarketers (45-35), John Edwards (45-29), the Kardashians (49-36), lobbyists (48-30), North Korea (61-26), the ebola virus (53-25), Lindsay Lohan (45-41), Fidel Castro (54-32), playground bullies (43-38), meth labs (60- 21), communism (57-23), and gonorrhea (53-28). . .
mech 3: congress beats gonorrhea *this* year…. but give them another year or two and then check again.

Did I ever tell you about the time that I accidentally left a paper bag of 30 crickets on the Service Desk of some schmancy Porsche/Audi dealership in Knoxville? It was about closing time on a Friday afternoon, and everybody wanted to get out of there as fast as they could, so the brown paper bag went unnoticed. It didn’t take the crickets long to get out of the bag.
Have you ever had a cricket in your house? Do you have any idea of how LOUD they actually are?
Well, that dealership knows now. I guess it took them about a month to get rid of them all. Personally, I would have just brought in a cat. Cats aren’t worth all that much, I’ll give you that, but they will stalk a cricket until they find them, and eat them. Hours, days, minutes. It doesn’t matter to them.
It is and I am. I never really planned on it. It just happened. The Leather Whips thing was just part of a phrase that I thought belonged in a song, so I made it one.
I’m sure I’ll never live that one down. I knew that at the time, but I just thought, “meh”. I still think, “meh”.
Not caring about what other people think of you is an entirely new form of freedom. Of course, there are limits. Try to stay within the local, state, and other laws while you’re at it. And lay offa them goats.
